The winner of last week's FGG winner is
Rhapsody in Books
Thanks to all who entered!
Good Luck this week!
Hot Cha Cha is about a little girl named Maria who finds a lost key to her city's playground. All of her friends immediately want to know the who, what, where, when, why, and how she found it. Then the adults in the city decide to join in the playground fun. Before you know it, the entire city is celebrating!
This book is perfect for young children . They will thoroughly enjoy its vivid, joyful illustrations, as well as the rhyme and rhythm of its text. However, it can also be used as a teaching tool for upper elementary students. As Gingerbread House describes, "Its scope is much broader, and it can be efficaciously applied to the teaching of verse -- either for writing verse, or for appreciation of it". The following is a list of some of Hot Cha Cha's attributes:
- It's actually a model for writing.
- It presents the 5 W's and How as elements of storytelling.
- It is written in both straight and slant rhyme.
- It presents alliteration in its body, dealing with consonants.
- It presents assonance, dealing with vowels.
